McKeesport is a city in Allegheny County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania; it is situated at the confluence of the Monongahela and Youghiogheny rivers and is part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. The population was 19,731 at the 2010 census.[3] By population, it is Allegheny County's second-largest city, after Pittsburgh.

Settled in 1795 and named in honor of John McKee, its founder, McKeesport remained a village until 1830 when coal mining began in the region. Large deposits of bituminous coal existed.

Originally part of Versailles Township, McKeesport was incorporated as a borough in 1842 and as a city in 1891. Its population grew steadily until the mid-20th century, when it peaked in the 1940s. The city's population in 1900 was 34,227; in 1910, 42,694; in 1920, 45,975; and in 1940, 55,355. The decrease in the population since the 1940s is attributable to the general economic malaise that descended upon the region when the steelmaking industry moved elsewhere. The major employer was the National Tube Works, a manufacturer of iron pipes, which once employed 10,000 men. McKeesport was the site of the first G. C. Murphy five-and-ten-cent store.

History Early history

John McKee, an original settler of Philadelphia and son of David McKee, built a log cabin near the confluence of the Monongahela and Youghiogheny rivers, the site of present-day McKeesport. After taking over his father's local river ferry business, he devised a plan for a city to be called McKee's Port. John set out his proposal in the Pittsburgh Gazette, as part of a program under which new residents could purchase plots of land for $20.00 (a lottery was used to distribute the plots to avoid complaints from new land owners concerning "inferior" locations).

Around the time of the French and Indian Wars, George Washington often came to McKeesport to visit his friend, Queen Alliquippa, a Seneca Indian ruler. After being settled by the McKee family in 1795, McKeesport began to grow in 1830 when coal mining began. The first schoolhouse was built in 1832, with James E. Huey as its schoolmaster (Huey Street in McKeesport is named for him). The city's first steel mill was established in 1851.

The National Tube Company opened in 1872 and became part of U.S. Steel. In the years directly following the opening of the National Tube Company, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, McKeesport was the fastest growing municipality in the nation.[4] Families arrived from other parts of the eastern United States, Italy, Germany, Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary, with most working at the National Tube Company.


McKeesport rose to national importance during the 1900s as a center for manufacturing steel. The city's population reached a peak of 55,355 in 1940.

National Tube closed in the 1980s, along with other U.S. Steel plants in the Mon Valley. The city with the help of regional development agencies has conducted efforts to revitalize the former mill sites.[5][6]

Kennedy-Nixon debate

Three years before both faced off in some of the most memorable televised Presidential debates, future presidents (and contemporary U.S. Representatives) Richard M. Nixon and John F. Kennedy met in McKeesport for their first of five debates on April 22, 1957, to debate labor issues.[7]


McKeesport is located at 40°20′38″N 79°50′56″W / 40.34389°N 79.84889°W / 40.34389; -79.84889 (40.343919, -79.848844).[8] McKeesport is about 12 miles (19 km) upstream from (south of) Pittsburgh, at the confluence of the Monongahela and Youghiogheny rivers.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.4 square miles (14 km2), of which 5.0 square miles (13 km2) is land and 0.4 square miles (1.0 km2), or 7.06%, is water.


The climate in this area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, McKeesport has a humid continental climate, abbreviated "Dfa" on climate maps.[9]

McKeesport (Images of America: Pennsylvania)
McKeesport (Images of America: Pennsylvania)
Located at the confluence of the Youghiogheny and Monongahela Rivers, McKeesport was settled by David McKee in 1755. In 1769, McKee acquired land from the Colonial government and one of his sons, John, laid out a village that became known as McKee’s Port because a ferry was operating there. Early industries included coal mining and the building of flatboats, and in 1851, an ironrolling mill was started. Industry continued to boom as steamboats and railroads soon appeared, and in 1872, National Tube was founded and joined by other steel industries and foundries. The growing industries created an abundance of jobs, and immigrants from throughout Europe flocked to the area. McKeesport still maintains a strong ethnic heritage. Through vintage photographs, McKeesport documents the history of this once booming steel town from the development and subsequent loss of its major industry to its recent revitalization.

Grandview Days: A McKeesport Memoir
Grandview Days: A McKeesport Memoir
Timothy J. Flaherty’s book, Grandview Days: A McKeesport Memoir, started out as a collection of some entertaining, and some poignant memories of a Steel Valley, Pennsylvania childhood, but evolved into a much deeper and broader understanding of the complexity of our humanity, and the civilizing process of growing up. He felt compelled to tell his story because a somewhat dysfunctional upbringing like his continues to be all too common. As a child, he felt chronically unsafe due to the unpredictable, sometimes violent behavior of his father. What would be a tender and forgiving man one day could be a raging, violent tyrant the next. “The scars of childhood are not simply left behind,” says Flaherty. “Fear, hurt, and anger from the past can lead to unhealthy behaviors, anxiety, and depression. There is a tendency to repeat family of origin patterns in adulthood that makes accepting the importance of one’s own childhood so critical.” However, he is convinced that no parent, as with no human being of any station in life, is unidimensional. “People are complicated by their sometimes rough treatment by the world,” he says, “which can affect their functioning as parents and as role models, but if, in the long run, one tries their best, that is nearly always seen and appreciated for what it is, and is enough.” Flaherty remembers his parents, grandparents, brothers, friends, schoolmates, neighbors, teachers, and local shopkeepers all so vividly. “Even the people who challenged or frightened us taught us hard lessons necessary for successful living,” he says. In our modern discussions of values, corporate ethics, and political accountability, he believes we would do well to remind ourselves that it is the crucible of family, neighborhood, and community that very early in our lives forces the fusion of our precious ethical mettle. The author considers that the freedom of access to information, rational thought, and the scientific (empirical) method for the slow discovery of truth are replacing narrow thinking and ontological divides that only serve to separate peoples worldwide. “We need only glance at the day’s headlines to know that guilt, fear, and religious martyrdom are poor motivators of honorable and altruistic behavior,” he says. In Grandview Days, Flaherty also discusses the environmental mayhem he has lived through, such as the despoliation of the western Pennsylvania riverine areas, primarily by the steel industry of the 19th and 20th centuries, and the largest oil spill in history, when the British Petroleum deep-water drilling platform exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. The overall message he conveys is that we are all role models for the next generation of Mother Earth’s guardians. A compelling, amusing, and highly motivating read, this book is sure to appeal to a wide-ranging audience.

McKeesport (Postcard History)
McKeesport's location at the junction of the Youghiogheny and Monongahela Rivers facilitated shipping and transportation for the early coal and steel industries. Multiple large manufacturers were located here, including the National Tube Works, the American Tin Plate Company, Firth Sterling, and the D.L. Clark Candy Company. McKeesport's downtown supported numerous theaters, banks, stores, schools, churches, and civic organizations. In the first half of the 20th century, the population increased dramatically, and McKeesport was a growing, thriving city.
